Study Programme - Pastoral Support
Pastoral Support at Green Labyrinth
At Green Labyrinth we understand the importance of providing strong and structured pastoral care for all learners. We work with the learner to support attendance and succeed on the programme. We do this within the centre by monitoring and teaching with specialised staff who are highly trained in different learning needs and safeguarding young people.
We have strict policies and procedures for Safeguarding, Behaviour, Anti-Bullying, Self Harm and PREVENT to make sure all our learners feel safe and help us promote a secure environment within our centre. Pastoral support is available to learners in the forms of mentor meetings, bursaries, tutorials, positive reinforcement and counselling.
Tutorials are an important part of the Green Labyrinth curriculum. They are taught weekly and focus on issues affecting our young people. They range from subjects such as healthy relationships, sexual health, hygiene, British Values and mental health.
Positive behaviour is a focus at Green Labyrinth and we promote this with a mediation process centred around the learner redeeming themselves, rather than being punished.
To promote this we have a house point system. The learner is put into a house (Neon, Lime, Mint and Jade) and house points are awarded for positive behaviour and good work in class. Each term the house which has the most points is taken out of class for a fun activity.
Although we liaise and refer to CAHMS and Ontrak, we can offer ad hoc counselling from our trained onsite counsellor if we feel a learner would benefit from it in the short term.
